Aims and objectives: Positron emission tomography-computed tomography (PET-CT) with fluorine-18 fluorodeoxyglucose (18F-FDG) is a heavily used morphofunctional imaging method in oncology for the evaluation and management of several types of cancer(1). 18F-FDG PET-CT scans are highly specific in detecting hepatic me[...]

Methods and materials: We performed this retrospective study between 1 January and 30 September 2016.   Patients   We considered an initial number of 92 patients for this study. After applying the inclusion & exclusion criteria (Fig. 1), we outlined a group of 38 patients (n=38).   A[...]

Results: Out of 38 patients (n=38), 22 were female (58%), with an average age of 62.9 +/- 3.37 (95% CI) years old (Fig. 3). The primary tumoral sites (Fig. 4) of our patients were: digestive cancers; unknown primary site; breast cancer; ovarian cancer; melanoma; lymphoma; thyroid cancer. All 38 pati[...]

Conclusion: Our present study confirms that 18F-FDG PET/CT scan has a higher sensitivity in the identification of hepatic metastases, spotting more hepatic lesions than CT scans alone in 81.5% of our patients. Future research could set up the development of a standard imaging protocole that includes PET/CT fo[...]
